Due to a torn MCL suffered in training, Ultimate Fighter 11 winner Court McGee has been forced to withdraw from his scheduled middleweight bout against Canadian prospect Jesse Bongfeldt at UFC 131: Lesnar vs. Dos Santos. McGee has been inactive since his submission victory over Ryan Jensen last October, and his current timetable for return is uncertain. Bongfeldt will likely remain on the Vancouver card against a replacement opponent. Update, 4:01 p.m. ET: Bongfeldt will now be facing Chris Weidman, the¬†undefeated Serra-Longo Fight Team product (and former All-American wrestler) who scored a unanimous decision over Alessio Sakara in his Octagon debut last month¬†at “Sanchez vs. Kampmann.”

According to reports, McGee injured his knee while training with the Cesar Gracie team, helping Jake Shields, Nick Diaz, and Gilbert Melendez prepare for their upcoming fights. (Damn it, why couldn’t it have been Chael?) So remember kids, EFX Performance bracelets may improve your balance and stamina, but they don’t make you impervious to knee injury…

Wow... i didn't think it was possible to hate everyone in a single camp, but i guess the Cesar Gracie team wins that one. Except Gilbert Melendez. Who the fuck is he?

Bonfeldt vs Weidman has a nice ring to it. I heard Clayton Stoner,Hank Poteat, and a few of the Denver Nuggets will be in attendance.

Ugh, that sucks. I like McGee. And I think Jake "The Sandman" Shields has a nice ring to it, for obvious reasons.

He just forgot to wear the EFX performance hologram that day. This proves nothing, CP. They protect you like the Tri-Force and Ruby Slippers.

Weidman is a good replacement, like this move

So, a former drug addict bows out a fight with a guy who's name starts with "Bong".

I hear some dude fell asleep watching Shields and McGee spar, and McGee stumbled over him and tore his ACL.

What a pussy! I heard about a guy who once fought an entire King of the Cage championship bout with a torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL).

Nor do they actually improve your balance and/or stamina.
